An example of Kruze Consulting Review

Our clients have reviewed us on Google, Yelp - and regularly provide feedback directly to our team and executives. A big component of what we hear time and time again is that our team really helps out at the most stressful moments that startup executives face - when raising a venture capital round or during an exit. 

We solicit client reviews regularly, and also measure FSAT, a better version of client CSAT. You can read about why we picked this method of understanding client satisfaction on our client reviews page, and read more detailed client testimonials.

Kruze Consulting Employee Feedback

The Kruze team is highly experienced and all of our account managers are based in the United States (although, before COVID some of them were traveling the world and still serving clients!) Our tax team is led by our founder and CEO, Vanessa Kruze, CPA, and Will Davis, Tax Director, and regularly helps clients during complex acquisitions by public companies - because, when your startup is getting acquired for hundreds of millions of dollars, you can bet that there is going to be a review of your tax return! Our bookkeeping and monthly compliance team is led by Bill Hollowsky, CPA, and has helped hundreds of startups manage their burn rates and raise billions of dollars in venture capital financing. And our COO and VP of FP&A both have experience as venture capitalists, and regularly review pitch decks prior to our clients beginning a fund raise.  

Vanessa and the leadership team regularly review employee feedback, and take employee satisfaction seriously. Team members meet regularly with their supervisors, and star employees are regularly promoted to bigger job titles and roles. The job is not a cakewalk though, as our clients rely on us to help them in stressful situations. But detail oriented accountants who want to make a meaningful impact on the trajectory of high-growth startups thrive at Kruze. 

Matt Ziser, VP of Business Operations, says, "I left Kruze to try to take on an executive position at a high-growth eCommerce startup, but missed the Kruze team so much I came back!"

Kruze Consulting Press Reviews

Press reviews

One of the fastest growing companies in the San Francisco area

Not only has the company been an Inc 5000 fastest growing private company three years in a row, but Kruze was also named one of the top 50 women owned businesses by the WPO. The San Francisco Business Times has named us as one of the fastest growing private companies in the Bay Area, and one of the top women owned businesses. 

Our executives are regularly interviewed by the press on important financial topics facing startups - everything from how companies are cutting their burn rate, to the typical amount startups spend on legal services to how female executives are busting through the venture capital glassdoor to raise increasing amounts of capital and grow their businesses.

Accounting, Finance, Taxes, & Payroll all in one solution

Accounting, Finance, Taxes, & Payroll all in one solution

Startup CFO services, startup accounting and bookkeeping services, startup annual taxes, expense reports, payroll, benefits: we've got you covered. Our software provides custom tailored dashboards that can be provided weekly or monthly, depending on your preference and plan. Founders are often so busy building their company that they don’t have time to take care of their finances. Traditionally, these companies have had to work with a basket of people to get their work done, including bookkeepers, accountants, AP clerks, CFOs, consultants, and tax accountants. At Kruze Consulting, our founders have one point person, saving time and money.

We're huge fans of Vanessa and the folks at Kruze Consulting. They set up our books, finances, and other operations, and are constantly organized and on top of things. As a startup, you have to focus on your product and customers, and Kruze takes care of everything else (which is a massive sigh of relief). I highly highly highly recommend working with Vanessa and her team.

As a startup, moving quickly is a top priority for us and we just needed to get our tax return done. After we uploaded our docs, we got our tax return in 3 days! E-filing was confirmed by Day 4. Super responsive and helpful!

Avochato has been growing rapidly in the past year – in fact, too quickly for us to keep up with books, taxes, and budgeting for growth. Partnering with Kruze Consulting has been fantastic to manage, track, and analyze our finances while we continue focusing on building our customer base. Kruze’s team knows what startups need.
